Entertainment Representation


Symphony Client Violinist


Eskridge & Eskridge provides a broad range of legal services in the area of Entertainment Law which entails many varied and often complex legal and business principles. Depending on the particular transaction, any number of sub agreements may come into play, from recording, distribution, video, television production and songwriter agreements; confidentiality agreements; licensing agreements and foreign agreements, to name a few.

For example: Most record company deals involve countless issues buried in the contract that require a trained advocate to recognize, address and negotiate. In each instance, with a typical deal agreement, the agreement must be rewritten by the attorney to reflect the middle ground in the deal.
